Happy Tuesday 🙂
Today I have a fairly easy workout to teach you, it is properly demonstrated in the above video. Many of you have done lunges or seen it performed, but to add some variety, I will talk about the “plie lunge”, for those that aren’t aware, there are many lunge variations. Lunges are a great functional exercise!
How to perform the movement?
- Start by standing feet shoulder width apart.
- take either the left or right leg and step sideways behind the other leg on your knee.
- You will do the opposite side – make sure that your back is straight the whole time
- repeat for the recommended repetitions.
So the workout is easier done than said, but a great movement and you can choose to add dumbbells or do it without weights, for beginners I would highly recommend without weights until you are more comfortable.
What muscles are being worked on?
- Major muscles in your legs
This particular exercise isn’t common, but it does exist. I usually add this exercise to a superset when squatting or I can do it for timed, if necessary. For those of you who have issues with performing lunges, this might not be your favorite exercise. I know I am not a BIG lunge fan myself, but I do however, enjoy plie lunges 🙂 Make sure that if you have any conditions or injuries, you speak with a doctor before performing this exercise.
